    I realized that the price I payed for my 8GB original iPod touch back in December 2007 ($299 US + tax)... is the exact same price for the 32GB 3rd gen iPod touch!

    Not upset, just a fact

    That upsets me.

    That means the price for the 3G iPod touch is back to $300, which is $70 more than the previous generation.
    $300 is a nice chunk of cash.

    But alas, I have the 3GS, so it doesn't really matter

    P.S. Are you considering it?

    The prices of flash memory drop so much... it's crazy what advances in technology there's been lately. Just a couple years ago I was amazed by the size of my iPod nano (1st gen) and now even iPod Linux is boring on it.

    Bubalooshi, it's not "back" to $300. You can get a 8GB for $200 - the cheapest price for the iPod touch since its ever been around.

    Yeah. I realized that as I was checking out... Doesn't time (and tech prices) fly? Its insane. Quadruple the memory for the same price 2 years ago. Wow.

    Oh, OK, I didn't see what else it could be.

    I just realized that I payed more for my 16 GB iPod touch than I would pay now for any version.
